Robert Malcomson "Bob" McKenzie (born August 16, 1956) is a Canadian hockey commentator who has covered hockey since joining TSN in 1986.

Growing up, McKenzie was a fan of the hometown Toronto Maple Leafs, and his favourite player was Tim Horton.[1][2]

McKenzie provides analysis for NHL on TSN telecasts, as well as for international hockey events, notably the annual IIHF World U-20 Hockey Championship. He also covered the NHL Entry Draft. Prior to and continuing for several years after joining TSN, McKenzie was editor-in-chief of The Hockey News for nine years and a hockey columnist for The Toronto Star for six years.[3]

In October 2014, McKenzie began appearing as a full-time contributor on NBCSN.[4][5]

McKenzie is heard weekly on the TSN Radio on the "Canucks Lunch with Rick Ball" on TSN 1040,[6] as well on TSN Radio 690 (CKGM) in Montreal, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the Morning Show at 8:05 am. He is also a frequent contributor to the Ottawa Senators pre-game show on TSN 1200 radio in Ottawa.

McKenzie now hosts a podcast called "The TSN Hockey Bob Cast" where he discusses hockey, as well as his personal interests.[7]

He currently resides in Whitby, Ontario.[citation needed]
